  Famous people of Rome

It was a bourgeois family and was born here in Via Ludovisi, Roberto Rossellini. Rome is liberated by the Americans on June 4, 1944. The Cinecittà factories are unusable, they have been an immense shelter for displaced victims of bombing. Where, yet, a young director wants to shoot a film from a subject of his friend Sergio Amidei, a masterpiece that will forever change the history of cinema: « RomeOpen City » start shooting, production difficulties are heavy and support the group there I am a bit of cigarettes, the food brought by the allies and so much enthusiasm.The interiors are turned at the Teatro Capitani, in Via degli Avignonesi, next to Via del Tritone.Then, still sipping the film, everything else is shot outdoors , among the people, with non-professional actors.In the heart of Pigneto, in via Montecuccoli, we turn the crucial scene of the film: the desperate race of Anna Magnani behind the truck of the Germans that her husband is taking her away. Every time is a blow to the heart.
